TaylorMade M5 and M6 Drivers
Reviewed By: Phil Sykes
TaylorMade aren’t exactly known for short product cycles but do they do make the number 1 driver on tour which given the number of great drivers out there is some achievement.
This driver confirms what we already knew to some extent, that as a result of manufacturing processes, for years tour professionals have been using slightly superior equipment than is available to the rest of the market. Taylor Made have identified that in past some ‘hot’ drivers have been made that are on or very near to the legal COR limit which are hand picked for the tour or make their way onto general sale, demo equipment and the like.
To combat this the M5, M6 and M6 D Type drivers have Injected Twist Face. In a nutshell, this means that the drivers are first made ‘illegal’ then injected to bring the driver onto the legal limit. This helps you the golfer with maximising your ball speed and therefore distance. The driver has plenty of other great tech too including the aforementioned twist face to help you with straightening out off centre hits as well as plenty of real adjustability in both drivers, especially the M5 which features the T Track system which optimises your spin and trajectory conditions.
Will I see this on tour?
Yes both are well used on tour and at time of writing the M5 has both 2019 majors in the bag.
Should this be in my bag?
If you want a long, forgiving driver the M5 or M6 is for you. Better players may also want to look into the M5 Tour. With its smaller, more traditional profile it’s great at reducing spin.
